Long story short, my collegiate career has been less than stellar. I failed my first two semesters at BYU and the third after I came home from Madagascar.
Then I came up to BYU-I and have been doing a lot better, though I've been taking a smaller class load. With a 11 or 12 credits, I've been keeping a 3.0-ish GPA.
I did attempt to take 15 credits over the summer semester, but ended up dropping out of one class and not completing another.
With trepidation, and knowing I wanted to graduate before I turned 30, this semester I signed up for 16 credits of upper-level classes.
Mind you, I still work 40 hours a week.
Anyway, with the semester over I was feeling pretty good about the classword I'd done over the past few months, but wasn't sure about a couple classes. Constitutional History and African History especially made me nervous.
But I checked my grades just now and discovered that I earned a 3.34 GPA for the semester. Lowest grade was a B- in Constitutional History, which I am very pleased with.
Woo hoo! Best semester ever. Just two more to go and I've got my bachelor's.
